San Francisco board rebrands ‘convicted felon’ as ‘justice-involved person plus sanitizes other crime lingo too.
Supervisor Matt Haney: “We don’t want people to be forever labeled for the worst things that they have done. We want them ultimately to become contributing citizens, and referring to them as felons is like a scarlet letter that they can never get away from.”

Crime-ridden San Francisco has introduced new sanitized language for criminals, getting rid of words such as “offender” and “addict” while changing “convicted felon” to “justice-involved person.”
The Board of Supervisors adopted the changes last month even as the city reels from one of the highest crime rates in the country and staggering inequality exemplified by pervasive homelessness alongside Silicon Valley wealth.
The local officials say the new language will help change people’s views about those who commit crimes.take our poll - story continues below
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, from now on a convicted felon or an offender released from custody will be known as a “formerly incarcerated person,” or a “justice-involved” person or just a “returning resident.”
A juvenile “delinquent” will now be called a “young person with justice system involvement,” or a “young person impacted by the juvenile justice system.” More
@DNC Doesn’t matter what you call them, they’ve still broken the law and need to be locked up. And in San Francisco…. Seems like you have better things to do.

Doublespeak is the classic sign that the Democrats who control these cesspools have gone off the rails and over the cliff and are never coming back.
Trying to manipulate the way people think of crime and criminals by changing the words. Orwellian. They aren’t changing the way we think of politicians.

Today the Democrats despise each and every citizen who actually thinks, cares and has a job. They are the party of the permanent victim class and their goal is to eventually turn every one of us into a permanent victim.
At first I thought this is satire and I should laugh. Seeing it’s not, I now fear liberals have completely lost their minds and we should immediately quarantine CA to keep the illness from spreading.
